$16 for a *very* non-performant material? If this was intended for use in high-detail scenes, not meant for gameplay, one would generally just use a flipbook animation, or looping HD video texture (both of which are higher quality and available for free all over). I love options, but c'mon, that's pretty steep. $5, maybe. And you can loop in materials, using custom HLSL nodes. Also, there are better ways of doing this, all around. Somewhere on the forums, Ryan Brucks (of Epic fame) himself touched on this. I've personally been working on a cool water material (not "material blueprint", thankyouverymuch) and utility functions, and am close to the quality achieved here, sitting at ~180 instructions with everything "turned on". The kicker? It's pure procedural. No textures are needed. So this is cool, no doubt about that. In my humble opinion though, it's not "good". It doesn't run fast, and it's more complicated than it needs to be.

Shenmue 3: Biggest Video Game Kickstarter Ever
17 July, 2015

The Shenmue series has always been loved by its fans over the years. They have always hoped for another Shenmue to be released. At E3 is when their wishes came true. When the announcement was made people actually cried from joy. Now, Shenmue 3 is the highest funded video game on Kickstarter ever at $5.8 million (and still rising).

With six hours left for the Shenmue 3 Kickstarter, a record has been broken for highest funded video game ever for Kickstarter. The previous record was at $5.5 million raised for Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night.

In the category of all games, Shenmue 3 is third in highest-funded games of all time. Because it is doing so well, if the Kickstarter hits 6 million, the game will have an expanded battle system that includes advanced free battles. At over $5.8 million, this goal seems quite possible.

Earlier in the day, the team behind Shenmue 3 announced a new $39 backer award. Anybody who gives this amount will get an exclusive Shenmue 3 wallpaper set along with their name added onto the official website. This includes the rewards that $29 backers get.

Another backer reward revealed was for those who give $2,500. They will receive the character busts that were created during the designing of the main characters. Yu Suzuki will be hosting a live broadcast on Twitch at 7:00 PM EDT today for the last few hours of the Kickstarter.
